How Often Should You Expect to Get Air Conditioning Service Done?

Having routine air conditioning service done at least annually can help prolong the life of your air conditioner and keep it functioning at its highest efficiency. Before we get to the muggiest days of the Manassas Park summer, have the professionals at Woody's Sudden Service Inc conduct your yearly air conditioning service.

Certain tasks should always be finished during a accurate air conditioning service appointment. According to energy.gov, your specialist should always:

  • Check for the accurate amount of refrigerant, and if needed, look for refrigerant leaks with a leak detector.
  • If a refrigerant evacuation is needed, reclaim any refrigerant that must be emptied from the system, rather than illicitly freeing it to the atmosphere.
  • Check for correct airflow through the system.
  • Verify the appropriate electric control sequence to ensure correct sequence of operation.
  • Examine electric terminals, clean and stiffen connections.
  • Inspect the exactness of the thermostat.

When it comes to DIY air conditioning service, changing or cleaning your air filters regularly is on the top of the list. That’s because nothing else that easy can help ensure your air conditioner continues to operate at top efficiency. In addition to when the air filter is cleaned or replaced during your yearly air conditioning service appointment, you should examine it regularly. We suggest checking it once a month or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. How often it actually demands cleaning or replacement will depend on individual factors in your home, like how much dust enters your home and whether or not you have pets.

If it’s time for your regular air conditioner service or if you have questions about air filters or another component of air conditioner maintenance, call Woody's Sudden Service Inc today at 703-278-2036.
